You could also use Photoshop, though it may be a bit more than you

I just opened up Illustrator. I've also used Corel.

What you're asking for is a bit different than in Corel Draw. In order
to "Convert Text to Curves," select Create Outlines from the Type Menu
with the type selected, before you save the document.

Also, EPS is Illustrator's native format. When you open the Save
dialog box, the default extension is .AI. However, that places an EPS
file without a preview, so in an application such as Frame, you will
place the file and see a grey box (this is how it works in
QuarkXpress; I don't have Frame.) Simply select either Color or Black
and white from the Preview Drop-down, the file extension automatically
changes to EPS.

Hope this helps,
